Evening Entertainment Programme

This applies to residential courses only and is compulsory for any student under the age of 16.

As the legal parent/guardian of this student, I give permission for them to engage in the scheduled activities provided in the Evening Entertainment Programme (ENTZ). I understand that all activities are undertaken at the participant’s own risk and have no reason to believe that this student should not be physically fit and able to participate. Any medical conditions/allergies that may be of relevance are listed above.

I understand that activities involved in the ENTZ programme may include, but are not exclusive to; sports activities such as Football or Zumba classes, arts and crafts such as Tie Dye or Cupcake Decorating, Pamper nights including mini manicures and offsite trips.

I understand that on any offsite trip, this student may have the opportunity to wander freely, without a member of staff directly with them, e.g. to explore shops of their choosing. On such occasion, rules and stipulations will be put in place by the OXSS team.

If I have any concerns regarding the ENTZ programme, I am aware that I can email OXSS directly regarding this.
